Windows cheatsheet


Windows lacks the standard unix 'uptime' utility. Use this:

net statistics server

Warn all users in domain

Make a domain-wide pop-up announcement:

net send /DOMAIN "The server is rebooting"

Kill service

There is also a 'kill' command for services. (Alas, there doesn't seem to be a kill -9.)

net stop "My Service"

And services can be started the same way.

net start "My Service"

Calculating checksums

There's a command line utility called md5sum. (May need to download it.)
